Glitter Flower Card 1

I found some pre printed acetate flowers I had in one of my bits and pieces box so decided to make some cards up with them   Here is the first one I made

I don't really like using glitter as I always seem to get it everywhere so I use glitter glue instead
The papers I used on the card were from Free Craft Downloads

I used Red, Green, Blue and Gold glitter glue
A 7x5 inch base cream card blank
A Piece of cream ribbon
Small amber and blue gems
Silver Border, and Happy Birthday  peel offs
Backing Paper Mod Square Lt Blue
Backing Paper Blue0191

I coloured in the flower using the glitter glues and left it to dry
I stuck the Mod square backing paper to the front of the base card, then I made a bow from the piece of cream ribbon ~ to this I stuck some amber and blue small gems then left it to dry.
I stuck the Happy Birthday on to a small piece of the Blue 0191 paper
when the glitter blue was dry on the acetate flower I trimmed the edge and stuck it to a piece of the Blue0191 paper I used a small amount of silicone glue in each corner (it doesn't show through ) I put it in the centre of the card near the top and under that I stuck the bow and below that stuck the Happy Birthday

Quite an easy card to make - using up some left over bits and pieces and papers from previous cards made
